In anticipation of Edit Murphy‘s upcoming performance on the WIDE AWAKE Art Car at EDC Chicago on May 26th, we sat down with the Smoke N’ Mirrors rep for a chat about his new Metro EP, Deep Disco, and his thoughts about the first Electric Daisy Carnival in his hometown of Chicago. Additionally, we have a free download of his single, “Keni,” to hand over to you today. It’s a melodic tune brimming with ol’ fashioned feelgoodery, and now it’s yours for free. Read the interview below and make sure to catch Edit Murphy on the GDD™-hosted WIDE AWAKE Art Car in Chicago next Sunday, May 26th.
Hard to believe that the multi-city festival known as Electric Daisy Carnival is about to commence this week in New York City, and GDD™ is proud to be teaming up with our friends at Insomniac to book out the Wide Awake Art Car stage this Friday, May 17th. We’ve taken a specific approach to curating the lineup for this event, bringing in a deeper/techier vibe to showcase up and coming acts from New York and beyond, including acts like M A N I K, Meech, Rynecologist, and our good friend Kromo, who has put together a mix that accurately portrays the sound you’ll hear from the Funktion One system this Friday.

After arguably the biggest VS we’ve ever had last week with a special guest set from DIGITALISM, we’re back this week with a showcase of LA talent that are making some big moves in the scene. Our good friends from gLAdiator won this year’s Discovery Project from Insomniac, getting them a spot on the lineup for Electric Daisy Carnival this month. We’ll also be celebrating the EP release of Dom Corleone, a VS veteran and ultimate crowd-pleaser. Support will come from some of our favs: Bastille, Gojira, and Justin Cornwall. Let’s ride the energy from last week into a good one this Thursday!
RSVP HERE for FREE entry before 11PM.

About an hour ago Electro wunderkind and GDD™ fav Porter Robinson posted on his Facebook that he’d be giving away one of his patented live edits once the post reached 400 shares. Those edits, until now, have been reserved only for him and those witnessing one of his sets in the flesh.
20 mins later, the post had well exceeded its goal thanks to his nearly 180,000 fans. I’ve heard the balloting was neck and neck, so Team Porter has decided to release all four edits for free! Just in time for one of the biggest weekends in Electronic Dance Music.
If you’re still wondering why we like the kid so much, besides the obviously ridiculous and continually evolving productions, just take a look after the jump at this little blurb he posted on his Facebook not too long ago. Take note, humility and gratitude do take you a long way. Get the four free downloads after the jump as well!
Good morning! Today’s news includes Myspace, Made in America Festival, Steve Aoki + Blue Man Group, and All Gone Ibiza ’12. Please read on after the jump!
